Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are raised in confined factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live a natural life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities don’t have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develope and affect the livestock. This then results in the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a lot of benefits. Some of the benefits will be the livestock are able to produce drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they generally suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.

It’s no doubt that sustainable livestock farming is the way to go if you need to be a successful livestock farmer. The livestock are raised in a healthy way and the produce is good for us human beings.
